00:0000:00

Just as with other large predators, from Grizzly Bears to Wolves, humans have hunted these species and in many regions of the planet have brought them to near or complete extinction. New scientific studies show the critical importance that those animals had and have on the ecosystems that they were or are a part of. As for the oceans, sharks play this critical role. There are over 400 shark species in the world, and in this episode we will hear about their function, their challenges, and what is being done to protect them.

We all know that a diet rich in organic fruits and vegetables and unprocessed, whole foods is the foundation for overall health and well being. And we also know that even before children are born, they are already exposed to hundreds of chemicals and heavy metals, a toxic burden that could compromise the children’s health and development. And from there our young ones, just as we are, are exposed to toxins in our food and environment as they grow older. Today we are learning just how important a healthy diet is in balancing this exposure to toxins, and what a healthy children-specific diet looks like.

Food is thy medicine, again today. Osteoporosis, or loss of bone density, is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and many other Western Societies. The common answer to bone loss is usually Calcium. While Calcium has an important role in our overall bone health, there is much more to the story. In this hour, we are speaking with a physician about how to prepare and combine whole foods to prevent and treat Osteoporosis naturally.
